Is this game getting less popular?
I remember using this site years ago and I felt I could always find games to join, or if I made a game it would fill up in a couple of days at most.

Is there another site that people are using to play? It still seems like this one is the best at least from my quick google.

Must See Movie Reccomendations
So I like movies a lot and one of my goals in life is to watch every movie that is worth watching. I've seen most of AFIs top 100 and I have a to-watch list that is 168 films and counting. As such, I was curious if anyone here has some must-see movies that I may not know about.

The Arab Spring was a horrible failure
Can you name any countries that benefitted from the Arab Spring? Libya is literally a slave-state, Egyptians overthrew one leader only to overthrow the next, Iranian arab spring failed, Syria is a bloodbath. Is there a single positive that came from this movement?

ND is typically pretty easy to play with in Press. Hes a loyal ally when you get him on your side.

France just looks very strong here- aggressive, tactical, almost too aggressive. Maybe couldve solo'd if he had been able to get Russia to stay around longer
The Lepanto isn't that bad.

It's not a Lepanto unless you build another fleet and send it to Ion while Ion pushes east. That game doesn't count.

I won with an AI in a live game once. I probably Lepanto'd there.

I'll play another Conservative + Extra(s) game if the community wants to do it. We can do a peanut gallery for it. Watch the best and most brilliant players on the forum play. Should be a good time.
I've done it before as Italy but I don't feel like digging through my wins to find it. You can take my word for it or not.

It's not a great opening. I basically don't ever recommend it to people that ask me about it anymore. But you can't write it off out of hand, as it's your only effective anti-Turkish opening, and Turkey is a must-answer threat at some point in the game.

You do know that the rise of radical islamic terrorism is largely a by-product of western colonialism/imperialism, right?

Forget about it. This isn't the thread for this discussion.
CroakandDagger (706 D)

Sure, but I keep getting told by progressives that radical islamic terrorism isn't a major problem so it doesn't really register when calculating the net positives/negatives.
damian (675 D)
30 Nov 17 UTC
Given that you're weighing the rest of the positives and negatives based on your own opinion presumably. It makes the most sense to weigh things like the rise of radical islamic terrorism as an issue that is as big an issue as you see it as.

Unless you're following a strictly data driven approach you're likely to produce a biased results in your assessment of pros and cons, might as well be a consistently biased analysis of pros and cons.

Why no love for Sum of Squares scoring?
Personally, I'm not a big fan of Draw Size scoring, because it rewards the power that hung on with one dot the same as the 17 SC power that was a hair away from the solo.

What I've noticed is that almost every new game is Draw Size Scoring. Is that just because it's the default option or are players here just not fond of it.

Who Are The Real Dinosaurs In Congress?
Republicans do a better job of promoting younger members, in part because they limit, to six years, the length of time a member can be chairman or chairwoman of a committee. Democrats do not impose term limits on committee leaders or so-called ranking members, the top slot for lawmakers who are in the minority.
